there and, you know, serve in harm's way in afghanistan and iraq. and i just wanted to do something. and that was part of my healing, the pain of what happened to us on 9/11. and since then i've met so many wonderful people, i met frank and so many wonderful folks that are doing good things out there, the firefighters in new york city have become very, very good friends. i've met so many people in the military traveling around. and just once i started, it became very clear that i was able to make a difference and it's been very hard to stop. megyn: you certainly have. i know that you, frank, you believe your brother's life brought great light to those around him, and it is your fervent wish to do the same in his name. you have certainly done that. gary, you as well. gentlemen, thank you both so much. >> thank you. megyn: all the best to the corporal. want to tell our viewers there are two ways you can help donate. tunnel to towers.org or gary sinise foundation.org. we'll be right back. ♪ i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the u
, u.s. diplomatic posts are on alert this hour. we have witnessed protests in yemen, iraq, egypt, tunisia, bangladesh and, of course, the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. that attack first presumed to be linked somehow to a controversial film made by a private citizen in america that depicts the prophet muhammad in a negative light, but now authorities are investigating, and there are reports that this was a preplanned terrorist attack that was intended all along to coincide with september 11th. and this is just some of the disturbing video that's come into the fox newsroom from teams around the globe. these scenes are from egypt earlier today. this is where the protest movement first began, again, query what the protest is about. we were told in egypt it did have to do with the film, but it clearly has gone way beyond that in many cities. angry mobs clashing with police for a third straight day, setting fires in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assau
out of afghanistan and out of iraq only entices them and encourages more of this. and can so you see the suicide attacks, the so-called blue on green attacks, the attack on one of the biggest bases in the country at leatherneck bastion, all of this something that budget is a consequence of a video, all of this to include benghazi was preplanned. it's not spontaneous. megyn: so you're saying they are feeling more emboldened now, that they don't believe that the american superpower will strike back in the way we once would have? >> exactly. and, of course, our ability to do so isdiminished every time we pull more troops occupant of a place like afghanistan t. out of a place like afghanistan. the sad fact of it is that the mission of the u.s. u.s. marinen this case with the fast units being sent out are to protect diplomatic missions from this kind of assault. well, there's not quite enough marines to go around if that's what we're going to continue to do, cutting the budget. so places like sudan which turned down the introduction of a marine security guard detachment and the enhanced f
for change. he held onto the timeline in iraq and he brought the troops out, and all of those things. but there is broad dissatisfaction among people who said that we are doing it wrong on foreign policy these days. certainly current events in the middle east would give republicans fodder to say who have an acute understanding of national security issues, that's not getting it done. megyn: to have have an acute understanding and interest themselves. we cover these guys are roscoe over there and do it. they watch these things carefully. i want to ask you. you know, the president gave the order to have bin laden killed. the mob and was killed. that was something that was celebrated by americans, military americans and civilians. but then there was the veterans group who has been critical of him, who went public with this advertising campaign. let's watch lists. >> i think when i go after bin laden, if we have a clear shot, i did -- i did -- i did. megyn: mike, that is the kind of thing that is making it impact. he is taking credit for. >> the president has wanted to show himself as the

insulting our closest ally. [cheers and applause] my opponent said that it was tragic to end the war in iraq. and he won't tell us how he will end the war in afghanistan. well, i have and i will. shannon: that was some of what we heard from president obama and several other high-profile democrats as they went after governor romney on foreign policy. the president's senior campaign adviser robert gibbs saidth something that didn't get a lot of attention. there was an op-ed signed four for former secretaries of state, they praised the governor's foreign policy positions and said he is ready to lead on the world stage. ambassador. governor romney has not served in a national position and he hasn't served as a senator who would be looking at intelligence every day. is it fair criticism to say he's not ready? >> it's utterly without merit. barack obama is not one to talk about who is experienced and who is not when it comes to taking the oath of office as president. a mark of experience is to learn something from the job which he obviously had to do. governor romney's career has give up him ample
as legitimate political parties and when we took out a government in iraq that was an alien enemy of iran and put in the wrong element in the middle east -- and you decry what the bush administration does? there was more empowerment of hezbollah and hamas during the last three years. what is the difference? i need to understand what the differences. >> haslett and hamas were not allies of the united states. they were terrorists. and by the way, yes, they elected hamas. there is a learning curve. people have to understand that if they elect. [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> bush overruled our good ally to israel. >> are you disseminate? [talking over each other] [talking over each other] megyn: i appreciate both of you. right after the break, the woman who found herself a part of the fight between planned parenthood and the world's leading breast cancer group. discusses the firestorm that led to her resignation and what she thinks of the contraception and abortion arguments featured prominently last week at the democratic convention. after a long run in the theaters,
of iraq. he still needs to get us out of afghanistan and is drawing down on that. usama bin laden is dead and the manufacturing sector is growing at a faster stronger pace than the 1990s. but still a lot needs to be done to complete the job, create more jobs. i think it's the right answer for him. i don't think there was a better one. megyn: you know, ed, does this stuff matter or is this trivial nonsense. what grade would you give yourself. if you were a tree, what kind of tree ... is this what drives elections >> it drives voters nuts. i think the president was correct. he has an incomplete grade at this time. he has not accomplished what he set out to accomplish. the truth of the matter is there is no guarantee there will be a changed policy if he gets reelected. at the end of the day a guy who does teach at a college. if you come in and you haven't completed your papers and you haven't basically showed up for class but you went out golfing and 150 fundraisers and say give me more time, give me another semester to complete this one you are not going to get a passing grade from me and i
capita they sent more jihadists to iraq to fight against american troops than any other country in the world. megyn: but here's my question because you were the doj under president bush -- >> well, a number of presidents -- megyn: okay. the bush doctrine was to spread democracy, allow democracy to flourish, and that's why a lot of former bush officials came on fox news during the arab spring and actually said, you know what? this is sort of what we wanted, to let democracy flourish. others came on and said, no, no, no, ambassador bolten said repeatedly we don't know what we're getting. sounds like you're in the latter camp. >> yeah. i've been in the no camp since 2003, 2004. i'm all for promoting democracy. if you look at it as a culture, we absolutely should be promoting our values and principles, but the democracy that they promoted is the back end, it's the procedural aspects of democracy, you know, constitution writing and popular elections. when i was in the third grade, we had a popular election, you know? we had a president, a vice president, treasurer. the nun was still
. he ended the war in iraq -- megyn: excuse me, let me -- come on now. >> excuse me, let me finish. megyn: we're not looking back over three years to talk about a history lesson. the question is, is it fair for him to criticize to meet with the ladies of "the view"? >> we ought to talk about what the benefits are to the american people and how the american people -- megyn: you know what, bernard? as the anchor, i will decide what we ought to talk about because my producers and i spend a lot of time in the morning -- >> megyn. megyn: i want to give you the floor, but i want you to stay on point. >> with all due respect, i'm talking about what the american people should be talking about. we should look at what the results have been, what this president's been able to deliver in terms of foreign policy. even your fox news poll has a 54-39 advantage over mitt romney when it comes to foreign policy. so, obviously, whatever this president is doing to end wars, get rid of usama bin laden, take out terrorists is working. megyn: i just don't think you do president obama any favors in arguin
the killing of american soldiers in iraq and continue to do so in afghanistan. before that iranian proxies killed hundreds of american troops in beruit and saudi arabia. they turned lebanon and gaza into terrorist stronghold, embedding missiles and rockets in civilian areas. thousands of these rockets and missiles have already been fired at israeli communities by their terrorist proxies. in the last year they have spread their international terror networks in two dozen countries across five continents from india and thailand to kenya and bulgaria. they even plotted to blow up a restaurant a few blocks from the white house in order to kill a diplomat. and iran's rulers repeatedly deny the holocaust. and call for israel's destruction almost on a daily basis as they did again this week from the general united nations. so i ask you, given this record of iranian address without nuclear weapons. imagine iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. imagine their long-range missiles fit with nuclear warheads, their terror networks armed with atomic bombs. who amowng would feel -- who amowng would feel
